Workshop 5: Chemical and Biological Nanoscale Materials

Co-organizers: David Tiede and Andrew Goshe

This workshop will explore emergent opportunities for creating new classes of nanocomposite materials that combine the functional properties of inorganic and bio-organic molecular materials. Integration of the normally disparate functionalities of inorganic and bio-organic materials within nanostructured composites holds promise for a wide range of applications in areas that include nano-patterning, signaling, energy transduction, and catalysis. The workshop will highlight advances taking place in the design and realization of supramolecular building blocks with covalent bonded architectures that are tuned for self-directed assembly, molecular recognition, and enhanced chemical reactivity. Biological, bio-mimetic, and chemical design strategies will be examined with a goal of highlighting fundamental molecular mechanisms for function, realization in nanoscale assemblies, successes and challenges for characterization, and opportunities for future exploitation.
